Construction support

Hi folks,

Hope this finds you well in these strange times.

I am looking for help and support with my Construction class this year. Obviously we had an excellent partnership last year with KEIR Construction who supported the class whilst building our fantastic new school. Many thanks to them for such an awesome building. This year we were looking for a new industry partner to help support the class but COVID-19 saw to that! I have 6 practical units still to deliver – bricklaying x 2, painting and decorating x 2, plumbing and electrical.

We have a lovely external fenced space to complete the bricklaying and possibly (weather dependant) the other units in.

As this is a new course to Alness Academy we do not have any of the materials required to complete the units – KEIR Construction provided these last year.

Would any of you be able to support us this year? Or know of any support? Ideally the materials required, I,e; bricks, lime mortar etc. as I can deliver the units myself, however last year KEIR Construction provided the contactor once a week to help support the class. This could be a socially distanced visit to work in our outside space or perhaps a virtual meeting? I know this is not ideal but I have some great children here who want to learn all about the construction industry and improve their lives by getting a trade.

Any thoughts please drop me a message,
